<psilynt1> I was looking for the last pgp encrypted message from cicada (you know the old one linked from twitter that said to verify with pgp) <psilynt1> searched for <psilynt1> searched for '7A35090F' on pastebin, sorted by date and there it was... I thought it was the same, validated it, realized that WASN'T the same, realized the pastebin date and brotherbin caught me posting it in a discord. <psilynt1> I posted it in discord, here, then in defango's youtube chat.
